Is There Anything to Celebrate?

59 years ago, the Jews were finally able take control over
part of the Jewish ancestral land and create the State of Israel. It was a time
of national climax and the triumph of modern Zionism. We lost 1% of the Jewish
population in Palestine during the Independence war later, and were not able to
retrieve most of the Jewish land. But nothing could dim the fact that after
2000 years of life in exile, Jews were once again in charge of their land!
At this moment, during the celebration of our independence,
the current gutless and traitorous political leadership of the country is
talking about “painful sacrifice”. We had already made them in 1922, by letting
Britain to cut off Trans-Jordan and the Golan Heights, respectively 77% and 5%
of our land; in 1948, by agreeing on a ridiculous maze-map the left over crumbs

with no integrity or national character! At the moment, the Jews are in a worse
position than we were in 1948. The years of political impotence, corruption and
selfishness have only brought the denigration of our national, moral and
With a weak Israel, we are experiencing the rise of the
international anti-Semitism conducted by Muslims and the predominately Left
political spectrum. The Jews in Israel and the Jewish communities worldwide
have been continuously losing their national identity Self-criticism has become
the national trait; support of true Zionism is highly unpopular among Jews.
Jews have nothing to be proud about or celebrate this year!

vibrant, nationalistic government, which is prepared to end the hypocrisy
forever and re-unite all Jewish land and Jewish people. Only then will Jews
have something to celebrate next year!
